Burst Optimized Stimulation Study

2016-09-12 18:38:22 | BioPortfolio

Summary

This purpose of this study is to evaluate the therapeutic efficacy of burst microdosing stimulation paradigms in patients with chronic pain.

Description

This is a prospective, multicenter, randomized, double-blinded crossover study designed to compare conventional burst stimulation parameters to two different burst microdosing paradigms.

Subjects will be randomized 1:1:1 to one of the three groups. Each group will evaluate all 3 stimulation paradigms in different order.

Study Design

Allocation: Randomized, Endpoint Classification: Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Crossover Assignment, Masking: Double Blind (Subject, Caregiver, Investigator, Outcomes Assessor), Primary Purpose: Treatment

Conditions

Intervention

Reprogramming of spinal cord stimulator (Proclaim or Prodigy SJM internal pulse generator) parameters according to study protocol

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Pathologic conditions which feature SPINAL CORD damage or dysfunction, including disorders involving the meninges and perimeningeal spaces surrounding the spinal cord. Traumatic injuries, vascular diseases, infections, and inflammatory/autoimmune processes may affect the spinal cord.

Reduced blood flow to the spinal cord which is supplied by the anterior spinal artery and the paired posterior spinal arteries. This condition may be associated with ARTERIOSCLEROSIS, trauma, emboli, diseases of the aorta, and other disorders. Prolonged ischemia may lead to INFARCTION of spinal cord tissue.

Repair of the damaged neuron function after SPINAL CORD INJURY or SPINAL CORD DISEASES.

Pathological processes involving any of the BLOOD VESSELS feeding the SPINAL CORD, such as the anterior and paired posterior spinal arteries or their many branches. Disease processes may include ATHEROSCLEROSIS; EMBOLISM; and ARTERIOVENOUS MALFORMATIONS leading to ISCHEMIA or HEMORRHAGE into the spinal cord (hematomyelia).

Neoplasms located in the space between the vertebral PERIOSTEUM and DURA MATER surrounding the SPINAL CORD. Tumors in this location are most often metastatic in origin and may cause neurologic deficits by mass effect on the spinal cord or nerve roots or by interfering with blood supply to the spinal cord.
